Washington Post 50's Decade Book - Gift Details

The Washington Post newspaper book uses reprinted coverage from DC’s flagship publication to create a fantastic reportage history of the key events throughout the 1950s.

After the upheaval of World War II, the focus of the 1950s shifted to, amongst other things, Korea, the Cold War and the beginning of the civil rights movement in earnest.

The conflict in Korea is covered in detail, along with the eventual truce in July 1953. And with the Cold War getting into full swing, various reports on the escalating tensions are also included alongside Stalin’s death in March 1953.

Conflict aside, there’s coverage of Britain’s Princess Elizabeth visiting Harry Truman in DC in late 1951, before taking her oath as Queen in February 1952. On the political side of things, there’s plenty on Eisenhower’s two terms, including the landslide election victory over Adlai E. Stevenson in 1956. Elsewhere, the votes that saw Alaska and Hawaii become the 49th and 50th states, respectively, are also included.

And, of course, there are lots of reports on the ongoing civil rights movement which, by this time, was picking up momentum by the day. As such, there’s coverage of the nine black pupils who were integrated at Little Rock with the aid of no fewer than 350 paratroopers.
